  1. Yea, never doing that again. I guess I thought it would be better since it's a 80 plus gold certified but I guess you can't trust that nowadays.
  2. Other update, it started to do the noise again today. Dont know why all of a sudden.
  3. Update: Ended up opening my case, wiggling around and making sure the connections to the motherboard were good and now the sound has probably gone down a good 80%. Still hear some minor sound and I'm thinking that can be attributed to the computer actually working. Now I'm much more confident in my components not frying
  4. If computer is off and PSU still plugged in there is no sound.
  5. I dont't know if your familiar with the Inwin A1 case, but the psu is built into the case. It's extremely difficult to remove it. And I thought the crackling was too inconsistent (didnt seem to have a pattern) to be from a vibrating component.
  6. I recently bought an Inwin A1 case and powersupply, the 650W gold certified version. The system will turn on but I am noticing a crackling sound coming from the powersupply. Also the sound seems fore frequent if the computer is under load. I turned off all the lights in my room to make sure I couldn't see an sparks inside the PSU and didn't see anything. I did look into it a bit and other seem to have fan noise problemes. Not me. It's really just a crackling sound almost like static but not very constant. I'm just scared for my components since it didn't do that in my previous build. Could it be a PSU defect ? The next step I might try is disasemble the whole computer and make sure my connections are okay, And then if nothing, I might try the PSU from my old build. VID_20200923_170217_Trim.mp4
  7. Hope you can pick it up in the video.

  9. Don't necessarely have a target performance. All I know is that Warzone, last order, and a couple other games played with both GPU and CPU at 100% and I had trouble with warzone at 1080p. You parts list looks interesting
  10. Do you think the b550 boards are going to be comparable in price with the B450 ?
  11. Was looking around. If I do need to completely change the system, what do you think it can go for on the market ?
  12. Budget (including currency): around 800 CAD Country: Canada Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: General gaming and utility Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): I've curently got : MSI Z97 PC Mate intel motherboard Intel Core i5-4460 Haswell Quad-Core 3.2 GHz Rosewill RG630-S12 – Green Series 630-Watt Active PFC Power Supply Unit Seagate Desktop HDD ST1000DM003 1TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 2.5" 120GB SATA III Internal Solid State Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Ballistix Sport XT 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Enclosed in a NZXT Phantom 240 White Steel case Upgraded my graphics card from a GTX960 to a Titan X maybe 2 years ago. I'm looking into what I can upgrade without having to change the whole thing. I kinda want to keep the graphics card because it did cost me more than 3/4 of what my original build did. Open to suggestions. My though is maybe go into b450 amd motherboard and cpu. But I don't know.
